mentioning oracle and the technology sector overall. it's a bit of a surprise to see tech dragging things, especially those earnings numbers coming out of oracle. what'd you make of it? >> we've been spoiled with earnings, they've been very good, and now we're starting to get some mixed reviews and a couple of misses on some very big stocks, so that's giving people a reason to maybe take a little money off the table. cheryl: okay. kind of a correction that makes sense finally. let's go to the cme and ira epstein. i was just looking, obviously, at the euro versus the dollar, what else are you watching? >> well, i'm watching the gold, and i'm watching the silver because they're both trying to, if anything, create a bigger trading range, in other words, break out to the upside of their trading ranges. silver yesterday tried the downside, failed miserably, reversed today almost a full dollar higher. so those markets are starting to pick up on the cyprus issue, and that's what they're looking at at this point. the stock market, also, if it's tiring here -- which i think it is as well, i think

the cyclicals, you've dope this for a long time, industrials, technology. that kind of your 2013 strategy? >> yeah, i would say that one of the surprises at least for me has been how well the defensive names have done in the uptake we've seen since the first of the year, and the cyclicals have lagged somewhat. i would be doing some rotating, believing the u.s. and global economy are going to be okay, i think some industrial and technology names make some sense. cheryl: all right. what are you avoiding right now? >> utilities still make me nestles. i think the fundamentals are mixed, and the stocks are fairly expensive. it was the place so many people went chasing yield and pushed the price of those stocks up quite a bit. so there's some telecommunications names that are okay, but most of the plain vanilla electric utilities, i think, are fully valued. cheryl: you've got some specific stock picks, and you like a few names, medtronic, that's interesting, mdt, pfizer, v.a.ler rah, northrup grumman. defense, interesting. but pfizer, health care. >> yeah. i think health care among the defensiv

single country or actor. there are several very focused, very well-funded and they're used the technology and their wherewithal to steal things, break into you get your passwords, corporate espionage. cheryl: do you get a sense the u.s. government is the group best to fight cyber security, or is it companies like yours? private companies but maybe this is a better way. speaker to be a combination of public and private. i don't think any country can do it alone and no single company can do it alone. cheryl: do you have a sense of what companies are most at risk? you're covering businesses, consumers as well, but you have a sense of which are the biggest targets right now for cyber attacks? >> it depends on who is attacking. if you're just after money, banks, obviously. if you're looking to disrupt things coming across to the energy sector. cheryl: the telecom association has blocked an effort to issue cyber security recommendations going back t the government section of this and how they can play into fighting cyber security. does that kind of tell you that we are further away than we want
